Raleigh 405Ti Raleigh Special Products Titanium bike with sought after Mavic Open SUP CD rims on Ultegra 600 hubs

I've seen very few in this small size: 47.5cm seat tube, 52cm top tube (c-c). I'm 5ft 5in and there's plenty of adjustment either way on seat post

Built up as a winter bike but a) it's almost too good for that and b) when it's lousy weather I've found that I've used my rohloff bike more

Spec as follows:

Raleigh 404ti titanium mainframe/cromo rear triangle
Mavic Open SUP CD Ceramic rims laced to Ultegra 600 hubs (36 spokes) & Michelin Pro4 tyres
New Campag brifters & cables
New old stock triple Centaur chainset
New Veloce brakes
Shimano 105 front mech
Campag bottom bracket
New Shimano rear mech & jtech engineering shiftmate
New 3TTT 4GX TDF Handlebar / 42 cm / Black
3TTT Status Quill Stem / 105 mm / Grey
New Cinelli Cork Bar Tape / Black
New Easton seatpost
New Selle Italia saddle

I'd rather not to have to post it, bike can be viewed/collected Hampshire. I'll take some pictures when it stops raining!

£350 no offers thank you, it cost me a LOT more to build up but I'd prefer not to have to split

Really? I thought that they were ceramic but it was some considerable time ago that I bought them. I used them for a year and then put them in the loft, "resurrecting" them a few months ago for this build.

I'll modify the original post

They are Ceramic. If you look, they usually have a big C-E-R-A-M-I-C decal on them! I have had 4 pairs. The perfect rim imo. Good luck with the sale :)

Thanks for the reply besam, there's no big ceramic decal but I'm pretty sure that they are

Either way I've now put it up on ebay for a tad more http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290919247034? ... 1558.l2649

I agree with besam that Mavic Ceramics indeed are the perfect rims.

But those rims are definitely NOT ceramics.

You can clearly see it from the worn brake surface. Ceramic coating does not come off like that. Normal CD's they are.

Anyway. Nice bike and good price. Have a bump.
